Pickity Place, Part 1
Nestled in the deep backwoods of Mason, New Hampshire, off a dirt road, is a hidden gem called Pickity Place. Pickity Place is where the author, Elizabeth Orton Jones, was inspired to utilize the building and grounds to illustrate the 1948 Golden Book version of Little Red Riding Hood.
For the past 37 years the cottage has been host to 5-course Gourmet Herbal Luncheons, made from the freshest ingredients and accented with herbs and edible flowers grown and harvested from their very own gardens.
Our menu on this day included delicious Lavender Lemonade.
Attached to the restaurant is a museum and bookstore where you can see the Big Bad Wolf lying in wait.
Exiting the dining area you can make your way to the gift shop which offers a variety of kitchen and home goods.
Although the leaves on the trees didn’t show much of the fall color the flowers put on a colorful autumn show.
I took so many photos that I decided to make this a 2-part post. The next post will explore more of the gardens.
Some of you may be familiar with Karma’s posts on this same establishment. It is quite popular in these parts.
